Reviews

9.4 Poppies Day Nursery Marlow has a Review Score of 9.4 (9.423)

The Review Score of 9.4 (maximum of 10) for Poppies Day Nursery Marlow is based on a) the Average Rating and b) the number of positive Reviews.

  • a) The Average Rating is 4.7 out of 5 from 14 Reviews over all time. This Average Rating is also the rating value for Poppies Day Nursery Marlow in Google's Search Results - more info

  • b) The score for the number of positive Reviews is 4.8 out of 5 from 9 positive Reviews in the last 12 months.

  • a) 5 Points are available for the Average Rating of all Reviews over all time. For each review the Day Nursery / service is rated Excellent, Good, Satisfactory, Poor or Very Poor on a number of areas eg Staff, Management etc. The Day Nursery receives points for each rating as follows: Excellent = 5. Good = 4. Satisfactory = 3. Poor = 2. Very Poor = 1. These points are added up and then divided by the total number of completed ratings to generate the average rating.

    The Average Rating of 4.673 for Poppies Day Nursery Marlow is calculated as follows: ( (115 Excellents x 5) + (51 Goods x 4) + (2 Satisfactorys x 3) ) ÷ 168 Ratings = 4.673

  • b) 5 Points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 12 months. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. A Positive Review is defined as any Review with 'Extremely Likely' or 'Likely' in answer to the question 'How likely are you to recommend this Day Nursery to friends and family?'

    The 5 points available are broken down as follows:

    1. 4 points are available for the first 5 Positive Reviews, 3 points for the first Positive Review and then 0.25 Points for each of the next 4 Positive Reviews.

    2. 1 point is available for reaching a target number of Positive Reviews based on 20% of the number of registered maximum number of service users. If the target is partially reached then that proportion of 1 point is given. eg a Day Nursery with 50 registered maximum number of service users has a target of 10 Positive Reviews, if it has 10 or more Positive Reviews it will receive 1 point, if it has 7 reviews will receive 0.7 points.

    3. If there are no Positive Reviews in the last 12 months, then 2.5 points are available for the number of Positive Reviews in the last 2 years. The calculation is the same as above, except the points are divided by 2.

    The 4.75 Points relating to the number of positive Reviews for Poppies Day Nursery Marlow is based on 9 positive Reviews in the last 12 months and is calculated as follows:

    1. 3 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 + 0.25 = 4

    2. Target of 12 positive Reviews (60 registered maximum number of service users ÷ 5). 9 Reviews ÷ 12 Target = 0.750

  • When a Review is submitted by someone who has previously submitted a Review, only the latest Review will count towards the Review Score.

All of the staff are professional and caring throughout. Our little girl started just after her 1st birthday and has loved every minute.
It has made the transition back to full-time work a breeze, as I know with all the activities and ideas the team have planned, I really feel she benefits from every day.
The food is cooked fresh in house, and even in the baby nest, children sit around the table together (instead of the row of high chairs in some nurseries) which really adds to her social skills further, and encourages her to try foods she may not eat for me. Dietary or medical requirements are all catered for with no worries, these wouldn't be missed nor are they an inconvenience to the team.
I would highly recommend Poppies to any parent looking for child care.

Excellent nursery. Our first daughter went through from 9 months until she started school. The start that Poppies provided her set her up very well for school. Although we moved away too from central Marlow (there are closer nurseries) we decided to send our second daughter to Poppies due to our knowledge of the care received and the learning environment.

My son (aged 3) has been at Poppies Marlow for almost 2 years doing 2.5 days a week. My wife and I have been very pleased with our choice of nursery and have seen our son thrive in his time here. He offers no complaints on the drop-off and is very fond of his key staff members. The staff are always warm, courteous and approachable.
The Nursery has been great at accommodating my son's nutritional needs relating to dairy/egg allergies.
Management keep the parents well informed of goings on via newsletters and are always happy to discuss anything.

The staff have always been welcoming and friendly and I felt like they made the effort to get to know my little boy from day one.
It was these factors alone that made me chose Poppies over the other local nurseries that I looked at.

Since joining Poppies, my daughter has developed in so many ways, she is more confident and balanced and looks forward to going into nursery every day and sometimes does not want to leave!

This is a testament to the staff who work hard and do a great job. They are approachable and create a supportive and nurturing environment.

My daughter has had a very happy and positive experience at Poppies and I fully recommend them.

My son has been at Poppies for a year now. He started when he had just turned 2 years old. He had attended a few nurseries from 5 months old. When I walked into Poppies and met the staff who would be caring for him, I knew instantly that I would be comfortable leaving my son in their care. The whole feel that Poppies has is just what we were looking for. My son has made some great friendships and settled in very quickly. The staff are very professional and as a whole team bring many skills and experience with them.

Leaving your kids with anyone is a terrifying experience, I felt quite sick when I first needed to do it.
Now for over 5 years I have had my children at this nursery, it has a lovely feel about it and my daughter went into school very well prepared and excited.
I will miss picking my boy up from there when it is his time to leave, maybe I pay them a visit anyway.

Friendly and helpful staff, my daughter loves attending Poppies and has made many friends in the 3 years she has attended. The location is perfect and the indoor and outdoor facilities are great.
The children have active and varied days which can include sports and music. The food is freshly prepared on site and children get involved in preparing the food.

Finding the right nursery for my little girl wasn't an easy talk. I have been to many nurseries trying to find the best one. I definitely think that choosing Poppies Nursery was the right decision. The staff are very friendly and approachable. My little on loves going to nursery because everyone is so happy and friendly. I would recommend the nursery to everyone. Great staff and lovely children.

My 14 month old son has been attending Poppies for 2 months now. I took him for three settling in visits before his first full day to get him used to the nursery setting and the staff. the staff were very understanding and asked me to take him in for a third settling in visit as he found it hard on the second visit. Overall I think the nursery is well run, the food is healthy and nutritious and my son is finally getting used to the nursery. I particularly like the small class sizes as it does not feel over run with babies/toddlers.

My son is 6 months old and was initially going to be going with a childminder. However, I didn't have a very good feeling about it so I decided to visit a few nurseries in Marlow instead.

Instantly, as soon as I walked in to Poppies I got a great feeling. I was given a really warm welcome and the staff all said hello to my son as we passed. We had a great tour and all my questions were answered and I had no doubts or concerns - Poppies was the nursery for us!

Poppies were great at offering settling in sessions for my son. Subsequently my son has started at the nursery and each time I pick him up he's smiling! The staff treat the children as if they were their own and provide such a warm and loving environment for the children.

Another huge positive is the organic food and poppies are also happy to support Baby Led Weaning.

I would not hesitate to recommend Poppies in Marlow! (it's that great 3 mums in my postnatal group are sending their babies there too).

A truly excellent nursery. Poppies provides a great environment and a wonderful team who genuinely care for my son and have so much energy and commitment to make his days fun, interesting and educational. Great extras are organic food, specialist music and sports sessions, nursery pets, mud kitchen, herb garden and special events/parties. He's been there from 1-3 years and we have had a totally positive experience and have been supported as a family and in all of our parenting choices too. Absolutely recommend Poppies Marlow :)
